Lost dressmaking book? - thread from TSF Survivors on reddit - is it this one??

Madame Cholet

On the TSF Survivors reddit pages there was a thread about a lost old dressmaking book. All I recall is that there were lots of diagonal cotton reels on the cover.
Was it this book??

Yes I did wonder if it was your copy...!
I was just trundling around ebay drooling over vintage sewing stuff - as you do - and there it was!


Lilian

You've no idea how pleased I am that you found it.  It could well be my copy. We will see  8)

Well done Madame Cholet! My charity bookseller visits hadn't had any success yet so I'm delighted you found it.
